In case you weren’t paying attention, yesterday was the Verizon IndyCar Series’ media day in Indianapolis. The ball is officially rolling toward the 2016 season opener at St. Petersburg on March 13.

So who wants a chance to see some IndyCar’s on the track a month ahead of time? If you live on the West Coast and said “I do!” while sitting at your computer trying to look like you’re working, you’re in luck.

All four drivers who will compete for Chip Ganassi Racing in 2016 will take part in a one-day test at Sonoma Raceway next Wednesday, Feb. 10. The test is open to the public with free admission.

Scott Dixon (No. 9 Target Chevrolet), Tony Kanaan (No. 10 NTT DATA Chip Chevrolet), Charlie Kimball (No. 83 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet) and rookie Chilton (No. 8 Chevrolet) will be present at the 12-turn, 2.38-mile road course.

Chilton, a former Formula 1 driver, will be making his first laps in an IndyCar during the test.

The test will run from 9 a.m.-5 p.m PT. If there is inclement weather, the test will be rescheduled for Feb. 11.
